DBGB NYC Ratings and Reviews
Second time i've eaten there. The food doesnt dissapoint. The rice that was served with the thai sausage was a little saltier than i remember. My table felt a little ignored that night even though the restaurant didnt look that busy aside from the 2 big parties. But Great company and the show stopping dessert did help calm my nerves. All in all it was a good experience and i would go again.
Extremely disappointed by the service here. Our party was rarely attended to, despite the restaurant being fully staffed. The amount of time it took our server to come to our table after being seated was ridiculously long, as well as waiting for our actual orders. Food was nothing special with everything else in consideration. Would not recommend for a large party.
Of course Mothersday-evening might not be the best moment to visit DBGB, but it's open and we go for it. Only 5 tables are occupied and Murphy's Law pays a visit. Slow service, no attention, raw pork sausage, and at 9.30 PM we are the only guests.After $ 240 + tip (2 pax) we leave at 9.55. There's nobody around to say goodbye or anything, we're dissapointed!
We've been here many times and looked forward to coming back. This visit, the service was slow and spotty and our sausage duo meal, a dish recommended to us by our waitperson, was served RAW. The inside of one of the sausage types was literally raw. Once we were able to flag down our waitperson to tell them (no one checked on our food after being served), he immediately replaced it. But it was a drag to not be able to eat together. And worse was no apology or even an offer to buy our meal, dessert or even the extra glass of wine while we waited for the food to be remade. Disappointing. Won't go back. Too many other great places to patronize.
DBGB did not fail to surprise. We were lucky enough to enjoy their recent seasonal special. Chef Amin deep-fried the soft-shelled crab (youngsters of blue crab) in which case you can chew every bit of the crab and ingest it. it tastes like.. it is out of this world. on the sides there is beautiful lushy green english pea paste, as well as polenta made of corn; the portion is just right for a lady. oysters are fresh and tasty. the fire alaskan icecream cake was a magnificent performance to watch, according to our waiter Rolando, it burns using a 50/50 alcohol (?) for the fuel. people here love their work. highly recommend dbgb for anyone wants great food, friendly ambience, and amazing aethetics.
Team dinners are always hard with my large group and catering to everyone's dietary preferences. DBGB made us feel right at home from the start. Not a single person had a bad meal and the team is begging to go back. We came on a Tuesday night, which is normally a night of the 'b' team at most restaurants. If this was the 'b' team, I can't wait to try the 'a' team. Tip: make sure and save room for the Kaya Soufflé. I had a 'where have you been all my life' moment and my team fought over equal sharing of it; I should have ordered a few.
Our second time at DBGB... first time was VERY VERY loud but food was pretty good. Went back to Brunch on a Sunday and the service was terrible. Took them 15 mins to come ask for our drink order. Another 15 mins to take our food order. The food take at least 30 mins to make (we ordered omelettes) and they got the order wrong.
We had an off night. It was a quiet Monday and the staff was overly attentive, probably since there wasn't much to do. Unfortunately for us, that meant hovering staff that was eager to pull things away before we even finished eating. We were one of five tables there and yet we were feeling rushed away. Shame, because I've always loved this place. My potato leek soup was also pure salt.
Amazing dinner! We went for our anniversary and it could not have been better.....they treated us to a nice glass of champagne for both of us - the calamari was the best I have ever had and the steak frites were melt in your mouth fantastic. My wife had the Piggie burger which was like heaven in your mouth. Great soufflé to finish up one of the greatest dining experiences of my life!
While the menu is somewhat limited, there are enough choices to please most people. We had the duck breast and the steak frites, both of which were very good, if overly salted. While the cocktails and glass wine choices were good, they were a somewhat expensive even for Manahttan.
My only complaint is I made a 5:00 reservation because I had an early show. The place was empty, yet they didn't seat me 'till 5:30 because they were still setting up. They rent the place during the day for business space, and the business hadn't cleared out early enough.
I've been meaning to try DBGB for years, and I finally made it happen for Easter brunch. I went with my husband and a good friend, and we had a great experience overall. I had the Frenchie burger, my husband had the Piggy, and our friend had the ham special with sweet potato salad and scallion cornbread. The burgers were perfectly cooked and well seasoned. I thought that the pork belly on the Frenchie and the pulled pork on the Piggie could have been more prominent (they were barely detectable), but the burgers were flavorful and juicy. My only other complaint about my burger was that the bun was supposed to be a cheese bun, but it ended up being a plain brioche bun, and the bun was so soft and porous that the juices soaked through the bottom of the bun after the first bite. I ended up eating it open-faced, which was fine. The price point for the food was definitely reasonable; however, we were looking forward to either a bottomless brunch cocktail deal or at least some sort of combo. Apparently they usually have one but not on holidays, so we ended up paying $13-$15 for each cocktail. Not cheap! Our server was very friendly and attentive, which was a plus. I would definitely give it another try for brunch or dinner.
Beautiful spot. Great flavors. We started with the calamari and then had the duck and the Yankee burger. The fries tasted odd, like the type you make at home from a freezer bag, to be honest - very un-French!
And our starting waiter left and a new guy stepped in at some point without telling us. We found out after noticing not seeing him any more while waiting for help! I've never had that happen anywhere else before, including diners! It was especially odd since each waiter was very helpful and attentive!
Good food and a great beer list make this gastropub on the Bowery a reliable value. Our group had a string of uncharacteristic service hiccups that were surprising for a Daniel Boulud restaurant. That and a couple undercooked items kept this from more stars in our opinion, but definitely worth a look if you're in the neighborhood.
Good place for a big group or a last minute friends get-together. Some nice, reasonably priced bites at the bar if you're just looking for something casual. Also been there with a big group, and their space is large enough to accommodate a pretty big table.
